Here are the most-known djinn species and tribes… The existence of djinns is still not accepted by those who are interested in positive sciences.

Unless you do not disturb or hurt them, they will not let their presence known to humans.

Most of them do not get involved in people’s private lives and they participate in events and meals, in which God’s name is not mentioned. Some of them also play with kids, disturb the household by making noises, clatters, and rustles at night and try to own the house for themselves. Some people tell them noisy spirits and believed that the spirits of the dead still lived there with the name of the poltergeist.

The food demon. It exists in what we eat and drink. They steal from the meals, which are started without Basmalah(1) and they contaminate the food by vomiting on them.

It forces people to think that one who has no material has no spirituality and disturbs the relationship with the person and the creator by preventing him from worshipping.
Although demon is also used as the devil, there is no specific name for this race. This is mainly because demons reveal themselves to humans as a god. This belief is the dominant belief in many belief trends such as spiritualism, satanism, etc. Demons can be easily summoned, and they are quite kind, but they can easily turn on you when you go against their wishes.
